everything that we hold dear. a win for obama, she was writing this on tuesday, will mean a continuation and they were saying of the cultural and legislative trends we have witnessed in the last few years. i'm curious to hear what you think about that.

[laughter] but what's really to your point, while these things are very important and i think that they have a clear role in places like maryland where the marriage referendums on the ballot. the timing was the backlash about what i care about. and that happened early to get the, you know, what is going to happen when my one-man or support of lgt whites come out, how will this i
that was very premature about the fiscal cliff. we still see little or no movement on a deal. president obama might want higher rates and cap on reductions for more tax revenues. that could be a deal-breaker and the markets won't stand for long while nothing gets wrong. i don't want to be overly pessimistic. i'm trying to be realistic. i'm reporting what i'm hearing. but stocks did rise a bit on news after cease-fire between israel and whhamas. is israel snaf particularly when we know that palestinians and gaza may just rest unand rearm for the next round? >>> finally as you head out into the thanksgiving traffic, ask yourself where president obama still hasn't given the green light to the keystone pipeline that would give us jobs and energy n independence? now a truly bipartisan group of senators is telling the president to make a decision right now. first up this evening, this is the big question. will we get a deal done or might president obama just let us go right over the fiscal cliff, take the recession, and simply blame the gop? this is a serious question that i'm hearing from washingt
from hamas to benjamin netanyahu, clinton, president obama, everyone had good things to say about morsi who is emerging as a pragmatic guy and politician but as a regional star. hillary clinton spent hours with morsi and his foreign minister talking about stopping the hostilities and negotiating everything else later. this time with morsi as the mediator, today in "the new york times" you can actually see the turnaround in president obama's thinking about morsi. it started out to be mistrustful of him but warming up to him the more he worked with the guy and frankly the more he needed him. so now you've got talk of morsi has being this missing piece, that kind of changes the whole dynamic in the middle east. he is the arab head of state with great leverage over radical groups like hamas. he's a friend of the united states, a friend of israel still, formally, and that sounds great but first morsi has a lot to do here and at home. he needs to be able to prove that he can enforce what he's brokered, which is as we have all said, a very fragile cease-fire. >> a very fine diplomatic line he

it is extremely important that president obama accomplished the following. across the board, all americans in gray, democrats in blue, republicans in red. number three, for all americans, second for democrats, and four four republicans. make major cuts in federal spending came in at number 5 for all americans. those are some of the results of the poll that was taken november 9 through 12 this year by gallup. are you optimistic about america's future? a majority of americans are optimistic. we are going to begin with a frome call from paul on orlando. caller: happy thanksgiving. if the petersons are watching, happy thanksgiving to them. peter, the pie chart that you showed a second ago where the majority of americans are optimistic -- that is who we are. we are an optimistic bunch of people whether we were born and raised here or not. i think the reason 41% of us are not is because of the quality of leadership. both republicans and democrats. the president promised transparency. the republicans promised certain wisdom when it comes to the economy. unfortunately, and it has not just been this term o
have top officials from both sides "out front" tonight. and speaker of the house john boehner put obama care on the table. he says if we're serious about getting our financial house in order, obama care has to go. is he crazy? or crazy like a fox? let's go "out front." good evening, everyone. i'm aaron burnett. and "out front" tonight, cease-fire. 142 people were killed in gaz why and five in israel, egypt helped negotiate a temporary truce which took he fleeffect a at night in tel aviv. it was met with gunfire in the streets of gaza city. it is fragile. israeli defense forces say there are five rockets launched from gaza since the cease-fire went into effect. and prime minister benjamin netanyahu's statement was cautious. he said he was willing to give the egyptian cease-fire a chance before there is a need to use greater force. not exactly a ringing endorsement. here's the key thing, while the united states got involved with a visit from hillary clinton this deal was not brokered by the usa. >> this is a critical moment for the region. egypt's new government is assuming the responsibi
obama, for secretary of state hillary clinton. but they are also viewing this cease-fire very cautiously. they know it is fragile so they're keeping that in mind as they continue to monitor the situation. president obama spent part of his day yesterday reaching out to leaders in the region, thanking them for making this cease-fire possible. called egyptian president mahmoud morsi, and benjamin netanyahu. president obama reiterated the united states believes israel has the right to defend itself. also said the united states would take this moment to work towards helping israel to further secure the region. but also talked about the importance of trying to achieve a broader security agreement in the region. and in speaking to egyptian president mahmoud morsi, president obama really thanked him for playing such a pivotal role. the white house saying that is one of the big things that came out of the past several days, alex. that president obama and egyptian president mahmoud morsi spent a lot of time talking on the phone. by some accounts they had six conversations in several details. and t
household, i get it, they don't want their benefits package flash or whatever. isn't obama the one that is talking about shared sacrifice? it could be we just don't have the money inhe end. the taxpayers employ public employees. we should have a say on what their benefits packages are. >> the average ivil servants earned 123,000 mis in 2009. but we are talking about is telling the workers tt if you work at the fod area at wal-mart when it's time to join us. this is the perfect atmosphere for them to make this move. >> the fact is that american workers in the private sector are underpaid. we have been losing the value of the currency compared to the past for five years. charles: you just said that the union guys make a lot of money. >> the federal employees. i took the stats and look at how much we're getting for the guys that work at the post office. what's to stop people from saying yes, why not? >> ultimately, there is only a few occupations that can afford the weight of that salary anymore. >> those are the companies that can afford the extra bonus package. they can't handle the
in what is now early morning live in cairo, egypt. the white house says president obama called israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and egyptian president mohammed morsi today. the president thanked them for working out a cease-fire deal but also said it's important to keep working on a more durable solution. a live update from the white house coming up on "the fox report." well, tonight, witnesses say the only bullets flying in gaza are shots of celebration. crowds in cars froogd the streets of gaza city after the announcement. earlier today before the deal was done, there was new violence on both sides of the border. team fox coverage continues. david lee miller live in southern israel. david lee, it sounds like the cease-fire is holding at least for now. that's right. trace. it's a little more than five hours since the cease-fire got underway. it is quiet along the border except for the occasional southbound overhead of israeli drones. the scene there very different than hours ago when the cease-fire was announced. there was a barrage of rockets fired into israel. when it took
have won. netanyahu has deepened his relationship with president obama. he has demonstrated he can actually involve the president of egypt. egypt's first civilian president, but a member of the muslim brotherhood, and to essentially enlist him on his side. the israelis avoided a ground incursion to gaza, which clearly they didn't want, and thief tested iron dome, which frankly, works very well, and they have used it essentially as a test. they know now how it works well and where it needs to be improved, so hamas and israel, i think, on this one really came out pretty well. >> so for netanyahu, given he is up for re-election soon, does this kind of cement his positioning, as you just said? it shows that he has a better cooperation with president obama, and perhaps puts him in the situation or in a position where maybe he wins a few extra points with the israeli people and maybe even on the world stage? >> i think there's no question that thering some development. when elections are held on january 22nd, benjamin netanyahu will be re-elected. he is now the fourth israeli prime minis
president obama's former campaign manager david plouffe and steve schmidt talk about the 2012 election. both mr. playoff and mr. schmidt attended the university of delaware. >> welcome back to the national agenda program. i'm director for the center of political communication. this is the final program of the 2012 presidential election season. i'm very very pleased that all of you are here tonight and i know that's a tribute to our two guest speakers this evening. two years ago in the wake of the sha lacking president obama took in the midterm congressional elections, the architect of the president's 2008 victory david plouffe stood on this stage and predicted the electorate voting in 2012 would be more diverse and younger than it was just two years earlier. he talked then about the growing latino electorate and he predicted that the obama campaign in 2012 would have to take advantage of those demographic opportunities. plouffe also predicted on this stage that the american people in 2012 would have had enough of republicans who were like glenn beck, sara palin and rush limbaugh. we are just
, benjamin netanyahu's comments last night, secretary clinton's comments last night, president obama's praise, everybody has good things to say about morsi, who has now emerged not only as a can-do politician, but a power broker in the region. for instance, when the truce deal needed to be closed and clinton came to cairo, she spent hours with morsi and with his foreign minister, mohammed kamul, finding the compromise that israel and hamas could live with. mainly stop the hostilities today and negotiate the other demands later. alex? >> jim, thank you very much for that live report from cairo with the latest on the brokering of the truce. joining me now, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. for special affairs, stewart is a special assistant to the president and is currently president and ceo of the nonpartisan meridian international center in washington. welcome, stewart, thank you for being here on thanksgiving. >> good morning. >> you were also partly raised in the middle east. your father served in the foreign service. you've seen firsthand from a young age that cease-fires have a history o
, congressman bobby rush -- who also happens to be the only person to ever beat barack obama in an next -- refuses to believe congressman jackson duped anyone. >> i don't think that anybody's been duped. i don't think -- i think that this is a process that nobody really knew exactly what was going to happen. i don't think he knew what was going to happen. and i think that we're all praying for him, and i'm -- and optimistic that he will be able to recover. >> reporter: jackson was allegedly skimming campaign funds to buy jewelry for a mistress. he said: i am aware of the federal ongoing investigation into my activities, and i'm doing my best to cooperate with the investigators and accept responsibility for my mistakes, for they are my mistakes and mine alone. none of us is immune from our share of shortcomings or human frailties, and i pray that i'll be remembered for what i did right. and the next four days we expect illinois governor pat quinn to announce the date of a special election to replace jackson. rick: and, of course, jackson dealing with major mental health issues. who are t
the situation in the middle east. president obama spent part of yesterday reaching out to leaders in the region, including president mohamed morsi. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu, thanked morsi for his efforts to help broker the cease-fire. speaking to the israeli prime minister, president obama reaffirmed the united states and said it would use the moment to help israel strengthen security needs especially dealing with the issue of arms and weapons being smuggled into gaza. president obama in talking to president morsi, again, thanked him for his role and talked about the need to try to create and achieve a broader security situation in the region. president obama certainly spent a fair amount of his day yesterday dealing with this. the white house saying that secretary of state hillary clinton did play a pivotal role. one of the key things that they are pointing to that has come out of all of the talks and negotiations, alex, there's a question mark surrounding the egyptian president mohamed morsi, and that question mark has gone away. fe feel president obama's relationship has got
obama. if you read and watch the conservative entertainment complex how could this guy get re-elected because we're socialist and week on terism and we're not honest and tt's not how most of america cease the president. even those that voted against us, most of them don't see us that way. so that is the problem. i think it's an underestimating of your opponent's strength and the reality of how people view them. d there was a ridicule that i think -- i don't fully understand the impact it played in the election but i know it played a deep impact. and listen, as i said, our party has gone through that before which was a disbelief that president bush could be re-elected in 2004. people saw it differently. >> i think there are a number of legitimate policy criticisms of president obama. and there are issue that is he's advanced in the country that i just disagree with. however, if you go back to mitt romney's book, what was the title. no apology. inferring that the president runs around the world apologizing for america. not true. that never happened. the birther nonsense t. attem
president obama made it clear that the ground invasion remains ready. >> but at this time, the right thing for the state of israel is to exhaust this opportunity to obtain a long-term cease fire. roch after eight days of violence, there is little to celebrate. and the violence intensified before the truce was announced. in tel aviv, a bomb blast aboard a crowded public bus injured two dozen israelis. >> we were sitting at home, and suddenly there was the loud sound of a rocket, and all our windows exploded. >> reporter: a palestinian rushed his child to the same hospital where he works, but there was nothing anyone could do to save his two-year-old son. reporting live in the newsroom, rita williams, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> syrian war planes have been targeting areas held by rebels near damascus today. raids have hit several suburbs to the east and a city to the north. the conflict began with an uprising against the president last year and has grown into a long-term civil war. some 40,000 people have been killed. >>> 49ers head coach jim harbaugh told reporters that his recent health probl

. but in the midst of so much tragedy, there are also glimmers of hope. ainsley: that's president obama in his thanksgiving address pointing to the hardships and the hope for so many individuals. their lives forever changed by the storm sandy as they begin that long road of recovery. anna coyman is live from far rockaway in queens right here in new york. anna, how are those folks rebuilding and celebrating today? >> reporter: well, hey there, ainsley, happy thanksgiving to you and yours. for the 19th year, rock and wrap it up is here at first congregational church, joined by sid mandelbaum. good morning to you. >> good morning, and thanks so much for coming down this holiday. >> reporter: you're thinking a thousand this year? >> we are figuring over a thousand and, sadly, most of it is going to be takeout. even though we're set up with tables, the majority of people are very uncomfortable first-timers to sit with others, so we're going to make it easy for them and give them food to takeout. >> reporter: thank you so much and good luck to you today. ainsley, a lot of these volunteers actually l

who don't know me. i was appointed by president obama a little more than two years ago to be united states attorney and it is my incredible honor to represent the president, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communities in our district to un
was acting on president obama's recommendation when he agreed to the cease-fire. allen pizzey is in tel aviv tonight. allen, was netanyahu reluctant to sign the cease-fire? >> reporter: he probably was, but he also didn't have a lot of choice, really, because they didn't want to go to a land war and they were under pressure from the americans. in his address to his people, netanyahu said that he thanked the americans for all their help and said that president obama had agreed that america would help israel prevent the smuggling of weapons into gaza, which the israelis say all come from iran. >> glor: allen, from your advantage point, will this cease-fire hold? >> that's the $64,000 question. probably it will hold for a while. the problems will start tomorrow, 24 hours after this came into effect. they're supposed to start opening up the blockade on gaza for a freer flow of goods and people. that's hamas' primary condition after an end to the bombings of them. it's not what israel wants to do. that will be the sticking point, jeff. >> glor: allen pizzey in tel aviv. thank you. israel and hama
